That is an awful line I must say, awful but interesting, and do not ask since I am not sure where I picked it up from.Nevertheless, when we mention the Spitbraai Cape Town, the saying seems so much relevant. After all, it is Africa we are talking of, the lion or tiger can take me as a dinner, and if not, then I feast on a menu from Spitbraai Hire.
